Now that summer is finally here, seafood is in constant rotation for our menus. Whatever is freshest and cheapest, we’re on board. That means shrimp are in constant rotation. However we can get our fix, we’re in! That’s why shrimp ceviche is such an amazing recipe. First off, it requires absolutely no heat whatsoever. The acids in the lime and lemon actually cook the shrimp! Second, it takes about 10 minutes to throw together. All that’s left is to let it all chill in the fridge for 15-20 minutes and then serve. Enjoy with homemade tortilla chips, served in an avocado or just by the spoonful for a fresh summer treat.
